Anyway Here is a recipe for the dough (the dough recipes are pretty much all the same so I just picked one - The Perfect Hamantaschen - NYTimes.com
But you can google for a dough recipe of your liking
But its the filling that you can experiment with. Date/walnut/cardamom is very traditional. Happy Purim!
Oooh, I haven't made hamantaschen in a while. I was introduced to these as a teen when I had an assignment for a church activity to research recipes from the middle east. We were supposed to make our recipe and bring it to an activity for everyone to try. Found a recipe online and dad helped me make it. They became a favorite of mine.
